K-Cup Valentine Upcycle (Guest Post: I Should Be Mopping the Floor)

Hi all! I made a big blogger boo-boo. I spent too much time on the computer and stayed up way too late...and wore my contacts way too long and my eyes are KILLING me!
I am trying to rest as much as I can right now,
and am very lucky to have some friend stopping by to help me out!
There is also an amazing group giveaway happening right now...

Now, here's Kristi! 

Hi there, 504 Main readers! I'm Kristi from ishouldbemoppingthefloor.com. I'm a part-time graphic designer and full-time DIY enthusiast. I love sharing my crazy DIY projects as well as designs and printables over at my blog. So thankful to Holly for having me here today! I'm sharing one of the easiest crafts I've ever put together...an upcycled K-Cup Valentine Box.

Y'all, I'm a total K-Cup addict. I can't get enough and always have lots of empty boxes. I like how the little flap on an empty K-Cup box folds down...similar to an old-fashioned mailbox. So...a little tissue paper, mod podge and less than an hour later....ta-da! It's an easy Valentine holder!


Everything I used I already had on hand...so this is seriously a $0 project. The tissue paper was leftover from Christmas.

I added a piece of cardstock into the front of the box to make it easier to attach velcro to later. I just glued it in. It was covered with tissue & mod podge, so it doesn't show.

I cut my tissue paper into little squares.

And away we went! Since it was tissue, I did several layers: mod podge/tissue/mod podge/tissue. That also helped make this little cardboard box a lot sturdier.

After it was dry, I added the velcro to make it easy to open & close and fill with Valentines. I also tied gross grain ribbon on for a simple handle.

I also added the rosette to the front to add a little extra texture. It's your basic layered flower rosette.

This was a seriously EASY project!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you again, Holly!
